  Backus  Backus total deal was 5 years at $6.573 mil. His SB was reported as $3.2 mil

 When his base pay is added to the SB, it comes up about $1.5 mil. Short

 I guestimate that he received a second S.B. in the amount of $1.26 million that is spread out over the last 4 years of his contract
                       
                         
                         
                                           
  Ellis In early 2001, renegotiated contract to take $3.323 mil. from base pay into bonus 

In early 2002, renegotiated contract and took $2.5 mil. from base pay into a S.B.) 

In 2003, renegotiated contract to take $3.7 mil. from base pay and got a $1.0 mil. RB for 2003 
                       
                         
                         
                                           
  McDougle  In 2001, he was paid approximately $850K over his base, which I assume is a RB

 Not sure if the RB all hit in 2001, or if spread out over all of 2001-2004, which I guessed
